I been at the shingles game a month. My rash has been healed well over a week and a half and I've been in misery. During the day my mind stays busy and I can deal with the persistent itching burning, but at night I literally am miserable. I take melatonin and ibuprofen pm and nothing helps me sleep. My side and back burn like crazy and have an itching sensation that is unreal. When I lay down it feels like bugs are clawing on the inside of my skin. I do not sleep (hence me posting this at 4:25 AM). I use cold compresses which help for a few minutes but I am at a loss as to what to do. Literally I am going crazy ... it's a horrible feeling that is so hard to describe ! Please any help would be appreciated!
